Sometimes its just about freedom and exploration; that is, taking a moment to release your inner adventurous spirit.
Greetings! I would like to share with you the story about my two Royal Pear watercolor paintings. The smaller is the first version and a new friend and collector purchased it this week.
One day I wondered what kind of wild, crazy pear I could draw. What if the pear were sitting on a table at night, under a pale lavender moon? Can you imagine? And, what if it were a festive pear? Come to think of it, what if it were a pear like one you’ve not seen before?
Be The Pear.
What does it mean to be the pear? OK, just a bit of silliness but, what can I say about a pear that might be little bit different?
Still Life With Pear.
You see, pears are a favorite fruit that one sees in still life paintings. They are beautiful and have a nice organic shape. Come to think of it, they are not all that easy to paint. You see, yes, I have drawn and painted pears in a more realistic manner and, in spite of their simple shape, it was challenging!
So, out came paper, pencil and imagination. I just embraced the idea of festive but regal pears. I freed myself to think “what if”…the light was from a lavender moon. Then, there is the wonder of nature in general. But, this is a painting from imagination and I can have fun. Liberate yourself from the tyranny of the subject!
(OOPS, over-doing it again).
Embrace the Process.
In other words, I mean to allow myself to be free and enjoy the process. Sometimes, an idea takes hold and it just must be done! And so it was: a jeweled, festive, purple royal pear.
Thank You Art2Business.
Layaway Is An Option.
Speaking of the sale, I would like to share with you that this is the first time we are trying out the layaway option. This is a service available to collectors.
Thank you! I hope you enjoy the freedom of expression, that is to say the joy and exuberance of my two royal pears.
